Design and create a future of your own.

Legacy Scholars targets historically underrepresented students who demonstrate a strong commitment to their education and are interested in pursuing post-baccalaureate opportunities. Through an extensive application process, scholars will be selected to participate in this two-year cohort model designed to help them discover their fullest potential beyond a four-year degree. Whether students plan to pursue graduate school or other post-baccalaureate opportunities, this program will address individual needs while providing a sense of community among peers, staff members and faculty. But even more, the program is designed to create a place where dreams are created and future legacies are shaped.

Applications will open in May 2022 for the 2022-2023 academic year.  Ideal candidates should be junior-standing at the start of the fall 2022 semester with plans to graduate spring 2024. Students must demonstrate strong academic potential and be from an underrepresented ethnic/racial minority group, and/or be eligible for federal Pell Grant, and/or be a first generation college student.
